Chennai Super Kings defeated by Delhi Daredevils

Chennai Super Kings has got shake first time after defeated by Delhi Daredevils. Chennai Super Kings won the toss and came to the field with bat. The captain of the team’s MS Dhoni decided well there is no doubt about it because the batsmen were doing well in the first to last. I think Dhoni was also satisfied about the total score. Even did not think that Delhi Daredevils will reach to this score easily.

A clinical chase, put into motion by a 115-run opening stand in just 11.2 overs and completed by a cool 33-run partnership between Dhawan and de Villiers. Chennai won the toss and elected to bat, as is their wont, but they struggled to really elevate themselves. They managed a healthy 169 but it proved easy enough for Delhi. The visitors bowled well, taking wickets at regular intervals and crucially stifling the scoring towards the death overs. That was the decisive factor. Then Sehwag and Gambhir blasted fifties, the latter becoming the tournament's leading run-getter, to put Delhi on course. Chennai lose their first game after four wins. They looked a different side without Hayden, Hussey and Oram. Siddarth Ravindran, who tried his hand at ball-by-ball commentary for the first few overs of the second innings tonight, tells me that Delhi are now number one owing to their net run rate of +1.263. So they are the leaders of the IPL.

Delhi Daredevils’ captain V Sehwag is now happy after winning the match. Really it is a amazing victory for V Shewag because it is was the first team was unbeaten. After beating Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevia achieve the top position of the score Table.
